Plea to remove hyatus from Cauvery river

Plea to remove hyatus from Cauvery river

Congress minorities wing maanagar district president Juber Ahamad appealed to the government to remove the hyatus spread over the entire Cauvery river near Erode indicating mixing of sewage water in the river. The water weeds would grow only in such contaminated water which could lead to mosquito menace in the area. 
The WRD officials should take steps to cleanse the hyatus from the river and protect the river from the pollution problem, including mixing of dyeing unit wastes and sewage water. 
Some years back, when KV Ramalingam was PWD minister, WRD used a chemical in the water to destroy the weeds. Lack of water flow in the river led to the growth of water weeds, he added.
